    Default A Few More Crumbs from the Table

    Nothing earth shattering - and a couple of new screens:

    I'm pretty sure that's a typo coupled with obliviousness to grammer meaning Hastati, much like triaria, being Triarii.

    Unless that was what you meant in which case I only wrote: Lol!

    That's true enough but I want to see more!!!!!!!!

    Specifically, I would like to see the phalanx and how a multi-unit group of them manuevers. I am concerned about that as RTW badly bungled that mechanic.

    It seems the writer transcribed from his tape recording and where the recording was unclear/distorted just went with a best guess. Triarii, Hastati and Coolus Helmet have somehow become something else. :( There also appears to be some paraphrasing that have changed the meaning of what i said. Mostly accurate though.

    I thought it was from translating from British accent to Aussie accent.
